Cuttack: Odisha Law Minister Pratap Jena on Sunday recommended that Jaga, one of the conjoined twins who have returned to Odisha almost two years after their heads were separated at AIIMS New Delhi, should receive in-hospital schooling at SCB Medical College & Hospital here.

Jena after visiting the twins Jaga and Kalia at SCB Hospital informed that while the condition of Jaga is improving, Kalia's condition is the same as it had been at AIIMS and doctors at SCB are putting their best efforts to improve it.

He said that Jaga cannot be sent to school now as there is no skull on his head. He has to receive a bone transplant as presently he is wearing a helmet for protection of his head. In the meantime, arrangements will be made to provide him schooling at the hospital.
